My name is Aristides (Aris) Zenonos, and I am a Ph.D. educated Data Scientist with experience in using machine learning to improve business processes. Using my strong technical background, I can exploit data to produce meaningful insights to enable informed decisions. Moreover, I am an experienced programmer and I have worked on supervised and unsupervised machine learning problems. I am skilled in Python, R, Git, scientific coding and research with a strong computational and scientific background from top tier universities.

RESEARCH GEOPHYSICIST, TOTAL, ABERDEEN, UK
Mar 2017 - Jul 2017
Topic: Time-shifts vs. Offset and offset-dependent dilation factors
The aim of the project was to analyse the importance of time-shifts vs. Offset. In addition, this will enable the various dilation factor models (R - Factors), which link to geomechanics, to be evaluated.
- Construct a 2D model of the subsurface of the field.
- Perform a ray tracing seismic modelling both for base and monitor surveys.
- Invert for modelled time-shifts using post-stack approach.
- Apply the various dilation factor models
- Link the results of the process performed in number 2-3 with the geomechanical simulation results.
- Calculate 4D time-shifts both with the modelled and real data.
